do you ever feel like there's something really wrong or weird about you that you can't see but is completely obvious to everyone else?

i'm always afraid there's just something about me that screams weirdo and creeper and other terrible things that guys can sense, like dogs and high pitched noises, that i'll never know about.

I just turned 21 and went to a club the other day. Before 12, drinks are free but just like vodka+cranberry, gin+tonic or rum+coke. After 12 I tried ordering a cream bikini (I think that's what it's called) and a white Russian but the bartender told me they don't make those there.My friend asked if they made blowjobs and they didn't make those either. She suggested I try a Mongolian motherfucker but I didn't like it too much. I have also tried Jager shots and Hennessy. They were too strong. I like sweet/fruity drinks better...

I feel like such a retard because I never know what to order...

What do you usually order at a bar?

What do you suggest I order next time I go?

How do I feel less like a retard next time I'm at a bar?

Orange juice + Vodka = Screwdriver or Sex on the beach?
Me and my friend we can't decide who's right.

Roomates boyfriend wont pay rent

I need some advice...

Here's a little background history on the situation im in:
My friend Jessica asked me and another girl Vanesa to move in with her for the school yr. Our rent is 2400 a month for a three bedroom, three bathroom townhouse (master bedroom, and a bedroom with a bathroom on the top floor, one bedroom with a seperate bathroom on the middle floor) It also includes a two car garage (tandem).
So Jessica wanted the Masterbedroom and offered to pay $1000 a month for the master and one of the parking spots in the garage. Vanessa and I spit the $1400 and rotate weekly for the second garage spot.

How do I get my cat to shut the fuck up? He mews constantly. He just wants food and sure if I feed him he will shut up. But that will just reinforce his annoying behavior. He is starting to wake me up at night with this bullshit too. Squirt guns do not work. Do they make shock collars for cats?

PS

The cats are on a vet recommended feeding plan because they are fatties. So getting more food is not an option for them.

I am going as the "Naughty Patrol" for Halloween. It's the classic slut costume, essentially a scrap of leather and vinyl with tights and heels, a badge, and handcuffs. It's mostly for the lulz. I will be wearing this to school. No big deal so far, but I am working Halloween and have to leave school the instant I get out to get to work on time. It wouldn't be a huge deal to go to work and change, my boss is chill, but there's a cop that is at my place of employment every day right on the dot when I get there. He's also really into being a cop. Will he be offended or amused? Will he arrest me? Will he insist on a strip search? ;)

Has your Halloween costume ever gotten you into trouble?

scenario: four people share a house. two of them are dating, and they share the master bathroom, which has an attached bathroom. the other two each have their own, smaller, bedroom. one of these bedrooms has an attached bathroom, and there's at third full bathroom in the house, not attached to a bedroom.

how would you divide the rent?

i think about these things when I can't sleep.

2. Would you rather date somebody who always holds the door for you but never lets you orgasm first, or someone who always lets you orgasm first but never holds the door for you?
- eta re the first part: they still help you get yours, just not by making sure to let you finish FIRST

1. Which is more weird:
a person that has a bunch of framed photos lining their shelves in their bedroom of people they care about, but they are not in any of the photos with them.... or a person that has a bunch of framed photos lining their shelves in their bedroom of people they care about, and they are in every single photo? or my two year old who is stuffing a polar bear down her diaper?

Should I eat mini pizza-puffs or Honeycomb cereal for breakfast?

Why did goop delete their question?

The meta rent questions reminded me of something I thought of a long time ago....

Say a single parent with kid moves in with two adults. The kid doesn't have an income, obviously.

Would the rent be divided by three, thusly the two other adults are sort of pitching in for a kid that isn't theirs.... or would the mom pay 50% and the other two adults pay 25% even though the kid is just a kid?

Would it make a difference if the mom/kid shared a room or if the other two adults shared a room?


I rescind my post because I have decided that goop is cool and she took this all in good fun. Which totally ruined my morning >:| kidding, kidding :)

Do you have an HDTV yet?

I am asking because I am just curious as to how widespread HDTV is now.

I bought one (well, bought by proxy as my mum was the one at the store, but we have an arangement to pay back the money) yesterday for $860 AU (US$700-ish I think), it is a 26 inch screen and has a DVD module built in (which means it can be removed if it breaks down), and has two HDMI inputs.

So, who here has an HDTV, and what are its specifications?

TQC, I am at school on a computer, and it seems that someone has left a 2gb flash drive in my computer. It belongs to a girl (because I read her files and looked at her images) and I think it has one of her assignments on it.

I went to a small clothing store yesterday afternoon to buy two pairs of black pants for work. I needed to buy both pairs at the same time, because I get reimbursed for the pants, but the receipts need to be sent into head office at the same time.

I found an amazing pair (so comfy that I only wanted those pants), but the store only had the one pair in my size. I asked the sales person if she would call the store in the next town over to see if they had a pair, and if they did, I would buy both pairs. She said that since it was a weekend, they don't call other stores to check stock.

Well, that made me mad, because she looked like she was lying. All jittery and shit. She offered to order me in a pair from the warehouse or whatever, but she said she didn't know when they would come in. I told her I needed them as soon as possible and she was still being difficult.

What would you have done?

I ended up letting her fill out the order form for the pants, and I'm thinking of going to the other location this morning before work to see if they have a pair AND to see if not calling is standard policy. Maybe this is bugging me more than it should.

So by deductive reasoning (i.e. the internet), I've discovered that my poor little puppy has a tapeworm (or several OMFG PLEASE NO). I am THOROUGHLY GROSSED OUT RIGHT NOW, both by the situation itself and by all the disgusting pictures and descriptions I've seen and read. Omfgomfg. We just took her to the vet a week and a half ago, and nothing showed up on the stool sample (although I've read that that's common). Have you ever had a pet get tapeworm? What was the treatment like? Did it gross you out as much as it did me?!?!

Can you share something that will make me less grossed out until I can get her back to the vet (probably not until tomorrow or Wednesday at the earliest)?



If you don't want to think about gross disgusting tapeworms, will you tell me what you're looking forward to? Anytime at all... today, this week, within the next month, within the next year, etc.

It's 2015 and a new law has been put into act in America. Unless you are 1/18th American Indian, you have to leave the country. There will be a blood test to determine if you can stay or go. The test will also tell you what  country your ancestors where mostly from. If you have no American Indian blood in you then that is the country you will have to go to. 

Do you think you would be able to stay?

How would this effect your family?

If you couldn't stay, what country do you think you would end up in?

I have a bunch of random items and a lack of halloween costume! I'm willing to buy other items to complete a costume, but I can't think of what I should be! What sort of costume could I make using one or more of these:

Black & red corset
Black and neon yellow tights
Bright red running tights
Assortment of random bandanas and scarves
White lab coat
Floor length black formal skirt (like this but in black with a shimmery overlay- I'm more than willing to cut this one up since I wore it once like 6 years ago and it's just sitting around)

I also have lots and lots of shoes, so I could probably find something I have to fit most any costume...

I have a question based on this New York Times article, which states that half of doctors (internists and rheumatologists) who participated in a survey routinely prescribe placebos to their patients.

My questions are specifically about this part:
"Dr. William Schreiber, an internist in Louisville, Ky., at first said in an interview that he did not believe the survey’s results, because, he said, few doctors he knows routinely prescribe placebos.

"But when asked how he treated fibromyalgia or other conditions that many doctors suspect are largely psychosomatic, Dr. Schreiber changed his mind. 'The problem is that most of those people are very difficult patients, and it’s a whole lot easier to give them something like a big dose of Aleve,' he said. “Is that a placebo treatment? Depending on how you define it, I guess it is.”

What's an irrational fear you have? Why is it irrational? Why do you think you have it anyway?

Mine - I have a fear of winding up alone romantically, of not being able to find any one who wants me. It's irrational because I normally do seem to find people who want to date me (and often they're people I like as well). I have this fear in part because I'm an introvert who doesn't get to know many people, and also because I'm not very confidant in my ability to live life alone.

We were each given miniture frying pan/pot along with raw meat, eggs, veg etc and were to cook it at the table on this little cooking thing. It was amazing and I loved the experience, however I have NO idea what it was (I live in Scotland, UK).

1. Does anyone have a clue what this was? Please note it wasn't like an actual indoor barbeque.. there was no wire or coal or anything like that. It looked like a small square eletric cooker of some sorts.

2. Also, any ideas what I could do with a cooking pumpkin? I don't have a blender of any sorts so soup would be pretty damn chunky.

Thanks!

What is Sarah Palin really saying here?




My work gave me two tickets to a special pre-release party and screening of Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. I never saw the first one. Should I watch it before I go? Can you just re-cap for me?

Grammar

I'm researching the district judges before I vote and I came across a candidate that wrote, "Let me tell you briefly about me."

Now, should it be "myself" instead of "me?" What do you think?

Old fashioned question:

What is your definition of cheating on someone? Is it anything you wouldn't do if they were witnessing it, or does it have to be sexual, etc?


And while I'm at it... What does it mean to be a "workaholic"? Does it mean you're addicted to workahol? Same question for "chocoholic." ;]

PS. Don't answer that last question, actually.

THANKS!

I apologize. That question was really retarded and boring and kinda pessimistic. I have come up with a better question to replace it.

Okay this is annoying me-- I'm not getting emailed LJ comments, and haven't been for the past few days. I've checked my settings and comments are turned on. Is anyone else having this problem? Any idea what might be going on if it's just me?

NERDS ASSEMBLE!

So I've been looking for this for a while. I remember seeing it on the cover(?) of a magazine about a year ago. It was a wonderful sculpture someone had done of a female stormtrooper. She had her helmet off if I remember correctly. I'm thinking she looked rather Tank Girl-ish. Maybe she was a rebel IDK. I just remember it was a Star Wars related. Shoulda bought the magazine.

Any idea what I'm talking about or where I could find photos of said nerdgasm?

Edit: Found it!

So, on my small little package of chopped yellow onion, the sell by date is 10/17. I opened it on that day. Ten days later, when I have a craving for them and want to add them to my chicken meal, would that be advisable? They don't smell funky but I don't know T_T
